Thanks for joining us for Harry Potter Day!

Our second annual Harry Potter Day library fundraiser was a huge success! Thanks to the approximately 220 people who participated, and all of the volunteers who helped the event to feel magical! We raised $3,000 for the library, which will go towards building a Story Book Walk in Little Crum Creek Park! Check out photos of the festivities, below:
